"Thanks to you and your staff, it was really a wonderful event and we got so many compliments for weeks afterwards. Not only for the food, but for the look of the hall -- the churchgoers had never seen it look so good. One guest even remarked about the "real china!" Isn't that funny? Well, I think they're used to something a little less formal, but we were so glad that everything turned out so well. I hope that the event helped get the word out about your excellent services -- thank you again for everything, all the best to you in the future!" – Cynthia S.
